I'm in France at the moment on holiday and I've been doing some field walking picking stuff up but haven't found anything that interesting (just bits of shrapnel and a fuse) but I found a shell that a farmer had left by the side of his field. The farmer was in the field plowing and he saw us and stopped and came over to have a chat. He told us he finds them all the time because his fields are so close to Vimy Ridge. He was very friendly to my surprise(I was expecting him to shout at us). He let me pick it up and take a few pictures but I'm not sure what type it is. It was about 12 inches long and very heavy for its size. Fancy having a go identifying it for me?
Sorry I couldn't take more photos as we were in a hurry to get to Vimy Ridge to pay our respects.
